Description
CS11HXLS: Hold Out I, Serrated Edge
Cold Steel
 
For many years now Cold Steel has been fascinated with the Black Knife or Skean Dhu (Gaelic) of the ancient Scottish warriors. Used as a utility or back-up knife and worn under the sleeve, tucked inside a jacket or slipped into the top of a stocking it was thin, flat "pointy" and light as a feather.

Now Cold Steel is proud to offer you our latest interpretation of this timeless knife in the form of an updated Tactical folder we call the Hold Out.

Available in several sizes to meet just about anyone's needs, they offer a number of contemporary variations and refinements at a very affordable price. Each blade is made of our tried and true AUS 8A Stainless Steel, and like its ancient predecessor's, features a thin, acutely pointed tip that's sharp as the proverbial needle. And it glides effortlessly through even the most puncture resistant materials while remaining remarkably resistant to breakage. Adding to their value and wicked effectiveness, each knife has been precisely and beautifully hollow ground before being honed by hand to a razor edge that will fling hairs from your arm like magic.

The handles of our Hold Out series are also reminiscent of their ancient forbearers. Fashioned from the finest American made G-10 laminate, they offer a palm hugging profile and a thin, flat cross section that resists rolling or twisting in the palm while remaining comfortable and versatile enough to accommodate a wide variety of gripping styles.

To protect your fingers from our Hold Out's remarkably sharp blades, each knife comes with our record breaking Tri-Ad lock. Proven to way out perform the competition in the most brutal tests imaginable, it's simply the best lock available for folding knives at any price. Due to the strength of the Tri-Ad lock, depressing the mechanism to release the blade might be difficult.

For discreet carry and immediate access, the Hold Outs are supplied with polished stainless steel pocket clips and thumb studs on the blade. This arrangement allows a wide variety of carry options as well as lightning quick, one-handed deployment.

Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: None
This knife is one of the best folders i have ever purchased !
I carry this knife daily. I use it typically any time I would reach for a pocket knife or box cutter. The locking mechanism one this knife is one of the best I have encountered. Two things you must know is that this knife comes with a factory edge that is dangerously sharp and should always be handled with that in mind. The unlocking mechanism is extremely stiff until you use enough to break it in.
